Benazir kay Bakray

The whole nation is still in a state of shock after yesterday’s horrific blasts that killed some 140 people and injured another 540 as Benazir Bhutto landed back in Karachi after eight years of exile.

If you had been following news on GEO TV, Aaj or ARY OneWorld throughout the day, you must have noticed constant ticker updates on how Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) workers were celebrating their leader’s return around the country. One of the most repeated reports on the ‘celebrations’ was the sacrifice of goats/sheep and bulls as Sadqa in BB’s name. Even in the far-flung Northern Areas, people were reported to have given Sadqa Qurbani of sheep and other animals for Ms. Bhutto’s safe return.

Benazir’s sharp escape from even the slightest harm in yesterday’s blast might have been the result of Sadqat of hundreds of ‘bakras’ given in her name all around Pakistan.

After all, we believe that ‘Jaan ka Sadqa Maal Hota Hai’ (Charity in the way of God saves Life).

    Hasan? :| …
    Your treatment of expressions doubled the gravity of the situation. Don’t be so cruel to mankind. Dont call them “bakraa” for sadqa. :(

    @PS I believe you’ve misunderstood Hasan – and he most definitely did not mean what you think he meant. The confusion is probably due to the very last line in the post.

    A great read on Benazir’s Homecoming.

    @PS: How could I ever mean that :|. Here bakras are real bakras that were sacrificed by PPP workers in many cities for BB’s safe return. That is exactly what I meant… :|

    Benazir Bhutto plotted that bomb it self for popularity in poor public because she was loosing popularity but that kind of incident created public favors for her and now she made a big vote bank in Pakistan, local government MQM also fully supported Benazir for this fitna but poor public still they are blind they don’t understand this fitna.
